Songs of Solidarity

Women's solidarity group who receive microcredit loans to fund small businesses through the organization, Fonkoze, are photographed outside a meeting house near Miribilis, Haiti, with a group of students and professors from Utah Valley University Peace and Justice Studies' study abroad program.  The photograph was taken in May, 2012. "These beautiful ladies welcomed us with songs in Kreyol which spoke of their gratitude for having been given an opportunity to sustain themselves through the funding," recalls  Denise Windley, Virtual Vaksen founder.
